  • "Eight 4x12 Vortex panels"

    Reviewed Jun 13, 2020

    Our old Fafco solar pool heater panels were in rough shape. I called Solar Direct to have them replaced with Vortex panels. We couldn't be happier. Kelly handled everything from the office like a superstar. She answered all of my questions and was a joy to speak with over the phone. On install day the guys showed up on time, were very professional and had the new panels installed in no time at all. Thanks again Solar Direct.

  • "Great Service"

    Reviewed May 07, 2020

    We were looking to update our 15-year-old system that the previous owners of the house had installed. After contacting a few vendors, we settled on Solar Direct based on the positive reviews throughout the Internet. They certainly did not disappoint. They were able to get my system changed out in a fairly quick length of time and walked me through everything that had changed. I am a very happy customer and highly recommend them.

  • "Great Company to do Business With"

    Reviewed Sep 09, 2019

    We just had 28 solar panel system installed and had a great experience with Solar Direct. We did our own research on different panels and inverters before deciding to go solar. From day one, we were treated very respectfully and all of our questions and concerns were answered. (Thank you Dale & Oliver!) We were given a complete description of how the process takes place and a projected timeline. Everything was completed in or very close to that timeline, the only delay of a couple of days caused by an abundance of rain for a few days. (Thank you Frank!) After the install was complete, we had to wait for FPL to install the NET meter, which was within a week, even though we thought it would be postponed due to Hurricane Dorian. Once the NET meter was installed, I was contacted and instructed on how to sign on to the website and install the app to monitor the system. So far, all seems great and it was a pleasant experience dealing with Solar Direct.

Solar Direct was early to adopt the internet as the preferred way to educate potential customers as to the benefits of discovering environmentally responsible solutions to a wide variety of energy related challenges. Our focus has and will always be on quality customer service, engineering, installation and service.

Custom Approach:
We believe that when it comes to designing and installing an integrated residential solar PV system, one size does not fit all.

Our energy consultants will work with you to determine the best fit technology, system size, and financing offerings for your needs.

Guaranteed Performance:
We guarantee the amount of energy your system produces for the first year, or we pay you the difference. We put our money where our mouth is, with the best coverage in the industry, at no additional cost.

We do everything in-house, allowing us to design and install high-performance integrated solar energy systems, and then guarantee the performance and production. We have a rigorous quality assurance process.

Customer Testimonials:
“Thanks for the good service. I want you to know that your crew of installers are
exceptional and costumer service oriented. Solar Direct has a great team! Thanks.” - Danny Lopez

“We have nothing but praise for Solar Direct from start to finish. Solar Direct handled everything from explaining the tax incentives and offering a "0%" financing for the first year and the Interconnection with the Utility. Well worth it.” - Brian and Shannon Angstadt

“I couldn't be happier with the job Solar Direct did. I had lots of questions in the process; I continuously discussed with Solar Direct my options and alternatives. Oliver was great to work with. And this year, from Jan to Dec, I have net overproduction of electricity which I am selling back to TECO. Not a lot, but I got
to net zero, which was my goal, and then some.” - Elliott Glazer

"We just finished a big project with Solar Direct and are very happy with them! They stick with it until everything is done to your satisfaction. They reconfigured our pool pump room with an automated system and we love it. We are already planning our next project with Kirk and his crew, we highly recommend." - Beth Golden

"Solid solar company since the 1980's. Engineering based, so custom design and installs are very competent, but not quick. Worked with them for decades" - Mike Evans
